Product Description

Review

"Mason-Dixon Knitting is one of those books that makes a home in the heart of knitters. Like a couple of favorite aunts ushering you into a sunny kitchen for tastes of cookie dough and the sharing of secrets, the authors comfort, inspire, amuse, and brighten the life of the lucky reader who steps into their world. I fell in love right away with the book’s colors, playful approach, and designs... Ann and Kay’s friendly repartee and wry senses of humor, genuine friendship, and the steady rhythm of cheerful and obsessive knitting interwoven with the pulsing music of family life make this a book to curl up on the couch with as well as to knit from." —Cat Bordhi, author of A Magical Treasury of Knitting
"Receiving a pre-publication review copy of this sparkling new book is one of the happiest things that's happened to me in good long while. To read Mason-Dixon Knitting is to find yourself surrounded by a world of smiles; it is to remember what's really important in this world (hint: it has to do with loved ones, home and joy); and, to discover some amazingly good, exciting knitting!" —Nancy Parsons, author and editor of Knittersbookshelf.com

"When I heard that Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne were writing a book, I was intrigued. Gardiner and Shayne are the two voices behind Mason-Dixon Knitting, an ingenious blog based on the ongoing correspondence of two friends (they met in an online knitting forum, and one lives in New York while the other resides in Tennessee–hence Mason-Dixon). Their blog is a warm and welcoming place, and their creative endeavors never cease to inspire me. The book is slated for a late March release, but I got my hands on an early copy at TNNA last week. I tucked it in my bag and promptly forgot about it until later that night when I was back in my hotel room and getting ready for bed. Having already read the room-service menu not once but twice, I figured I'd let Kay and Ann put me to sleep. But they didn't. An hour later I was still wide awake, relishing every word and unable to believe the book could be this good." —Knittersreview.com, Clara Parkes

About the Author

Kay Gardiner learned to knit as a child, but put aside her needles for twenty years to obtain a law degree from Columbia, become an assistant United States attorney in Manhattan, and start a family. Luckily for us, she returned to knitting with a vengeance. After stints in the New York publishing world, Ann Shayne returned to her hometown of Nashville to edit BookPage. She has since chosen to devote her time to her family—and knitting.Two years ago, Kay and Ann met on an online knitting-message board, and their correspondence has grown into a “close-knit” community of more than ten thousand who regularly log on to masondixonknitting.com.

I wanted to make my own knitting patterns and this is the book to tell me how. I have already made a pattern using the instructions in the book. It's more fun than having a pattern ready made for you. I am 87 and find 'How To' books fascinating--especially when I can make something worthwhile.This book 'Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Knitters' Guide:Stories,Patterns,Advice,Opinions,Questions,Answers,Jokes and Pictures" It is well worth reading all the way through. It is humourous and knowledgeable and I thoroughly enjoyed it and will refer to it many more times.

This is a knitting book that is just plain fun to read. Anyone who is familiar with the style of the two authors, well known from their masondixonknitting.com site, will enjoy this book. It is packed with ideas, inspiration, patterns, photos and humour. I'll be buying this book as presents for knitting friends - it's a great addition to any knitter's library. I can't say enough good things about it!

I have looked at the book and the projects. Some of the easier projects my husband might try. It focuses on projects for the home.
